I just got stung today on my chin,  it doesn't hurt, but it is swollen pretty bad.  I now have a chin like Jay Leno , and 1/2 of my lower face is swollen.  I look like the elephant man.

Forwhat ever reason, stings on the face and head, tend to look worse,  any ideas as to why?

When I started bee keeping I awolled "quite normally". Now my resistance have raised and my face stand about 5 stings. If it goes over, It swells but not stay than 24 hours.

I am more sensitive for wasp stings tahn bees.

Which hurts most? When bee stings to stomach or at head skin.

"stings on the face and head, tend to look worse,  any ideas as to why?"

Form of face is very delicated thing.  Somethimes my arm has been like  that of Popeye the Sailor Man

I can't explain for you why face stings seem to be worse, but I can agree. I have been stung 7 times this year and the ONLY sting that got swollen was the one on the end of my nose. It was swollen for about 2 days. I have had stings on my hands, neck and forehead. None of these was even noticable after a day. My freind says the worst place to get stung is between the nose and upper lip.  Anyone have that experience?

Another I catched in the cow stable. I  had placed there  trap hive. It was allready nigt and I now wonder, why I did not went home to sleep. I was all nigt in the stable and bees stung me whole night in the darknes.

I sweb all the time stings with knife from my skin.

Inside the mouth tickles a bit.  Tough to get the stinger out of your tongue.  Make sure there are no bees on that honey filled burr comb when you eat it.  Right under the finger nail is always fun too.  I find most places just itch a bit and then are gone.  But a few remind you that they really didn't want you in there in the first place.

I would expect that stings to the face and like swell more due to lack of fatty tissue and the bodies overactive histamine response to the cranial area.  Just my two cents...

You got stung just this morning!? What a bummer.

I hope the rest of the day gets better. If anything else happens though..... like scald your tounge with coffee, or get bacon grease in your eye..... well, I'd go back to bed. Smiley

Hope it doesn't turn out to be one of those days. LOL

Get well,
Beth

Brian,

...and I thought I was the only one to get stung in a sensitive male area. embarassed It wasn't really that bad with the exception of Mrs Beesharp's amusement over my discomfort.

We moved bees a couple weeks ago and I must've got 30-40 stings for the first stings of the season. I didn't feel good most of the day, but the 10 or so I took on one ankle bothered me the most.

When one of the little bees gets in under your viel,all you can do is cringe and hope for the best. Sometimes they won't sting sometimes they do,usually near my mouth or nose.  One thing I am very conscious of is wet clothing, you might as well have nothing on, they can sting right through the wet cloth. Beemaster says it best though, when he said he would take a hundred bees sting to one sting from a yellow jacket. I for one HATE yellow jackets even if they do have a purpose in life--death to all those nasty,mean,foul tempered,honey robbing,picnic spoiling,kid chasing so and so's that give our  gentle honey bee a bad rap. angry

Just to make you all jealous, apparently I don't react to stings. I feel pain for a few seconds, but within half an hour, I can't even tell where it happened--even when I got stung on the lip.

Shrug. The variety of nature, huh? I hope this doesn't mean I'll develop a sensitivity just as fast...

When I was 16 I starddledled a hive body to move it.  The bees fell into my shoes.  I had to retreat, and use unlaced sneakers to finish, my feet were swollen.

Much later removing bees from under siding at my wife’s grandmothers, a bee got under my veil, stung me, but what really got me was it then pulled my eyebrows.

The sting I remember best happened when working a hive in the garden.
It was a good day.   My Wife was walking from an out building, along the road by the garden, with an un-hatched & abandoned robin's egg.   A bee made its way up my leg.  I dropped my pants.   Wife was silhouetted against the sky.  She wondered what was I doing.  The bee made a beeline to her forehead.   Stung, she crushed the egg.

Some of the best laughs I've had in a while. Beekeepers are tough!

My hands seem unaffected by stings but one by the eye did swell up for a day or so.

Lesli,

Im the same way I dont react to stings.  I have been told by the doc that at any time a person that has no reaction to stings They could become highly allerigc to them.  So I try to stay on the safe side Smiley
